This game works with Wine 1.1.29, but not with the newer versions until 1.3.32, which works even better!
Additional infor for 1.1.29:
Mouse override is not needed anymore!
I suggest to play the game inside a wine desktop due to low resolution supported by the game, however fullscreen should works too
